    I"m exciting vs I'm excited

    Hi,

    people has been telling me that if i say "I'm exciting" is incorrect. But I cant seems to find the reason behind as we can say 'I'm writing.

    thanks your advice.

    Re: I"m exciting vs I'm excited

    I am exciting. I make other excited.
    I am frightening. I make others feel frightened.
    I am boring. I bore others.

    Who is feeling excitement? You or others?

    If it's you, then say "I am excited."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
